NYU College of Dentistry to Name the Elliott M. Moskowitz Orthodontic Wing in Recognition of $1.2 Million Gift, Moskowitz Give a Smile Fund Also Created

Dr. Elliot M. Moskowitz
The NYU College of Dentistry (NYUCD) will name the Dr. Elliott M. Moskowitz Orthodontic Wing in recognition of a $1.2 million gift from Dr. Moskowitz to help transform a 20th century clinical and research environment to reflect 21st century technology, design, and function. NYUCD has also created the Elliott M. Moskowitz Give a Smile Fund, which will build on Dr. Moskowitz's gift to secure the additional resources required to achieve this goal.

Dr. Moskowitz, an alumnus of the NYU College of Dentistry and an internationally respected orthodontist, researcher, author, and editor for over 40 years, is also a long-time faculty member of the NYU Department of Orthodontics and a distinguished alumni leader, having served both as president of the NYU Dental Alumni Association and the NYU Orthodontic Alumni Society.

According to Dr. Moskowitz, "the past several years have seen immense strides by the NYU Department of Orthodontics in education, research, and patient care, including the creation of the Consortium for Translational Orthodontic Research, or CTOR, which functions as a nucleus for the integration of basic science, clinical science, and industrial resources in the field of orthodontics. The department has also expanded the scope of its community services, which each year includes care for thousands of medically-indigent youngsters and adolescents suffering from a wide range of orthodontic conditions. Excitement and enthusiasm among faculty and alumni have never been greater; facilities, however, have not kept pace with these advances. I made my gift in order to give something meaningful back to my department; for me that means providing the seed money to build physical facilities that are commensurate with the department's increasingly visible role in the profession and the community."

Said Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, Dean of the NYU College of Dentistry, "Dr. Moskowitz's great generosity testifies both to his extraordinary devotion to his alma mater and the future of his specialty area and to his sense of giving something back as an integral part of contributing to society. We are honored to name the Elliott M. Moskowitz Orthodontic Wing in recognition of his thoughtful and generous gift and hopeful that others will join him in ensuring the ability of the NYU Department of Orthodontics to continue to fulfill its leadership potential."
